    His improved state of mind, and the superior production on some of the tracks, does bring the music on occasion perilously close to the RnB blandness to which this is presumably supposed to provide an alternative.

    Krell seems like a victim of his own good intentions. There's a kernel of an idea here.

    Melancholic, romantic and unashamedly emotional, his loss is our gain. [Oct 2012, p.103]

    This new approach is graceful but weary, with mixed results throughout.

    This is my first time listening to Total Loss. Overall, I am glad I took a listen. Most of the songs reminded me alot of The Weeknd. It seemsThis is my first time listening to Total Loss. Overall, I am glad I took a listen. Most of the songs reminded me alot of The Weeknd. It seems like this is the new spacey R&B style. Very easy to listen to as the vocals are carried by a variety of nice beats. An expert in the genre might dislike the production of the album, but the other 90% of the R&B audience will enjoy it!

    While I really appreciate Krell's unique ambient spin, I find he really dominates when he lays down a spicy beat like on & It Was You.
